    Hi, here is my question,
    I consider myself a little bit above average Salsa dancer, I can keep in step very well with just about any woman , but recently I had the privilege to dance with a very nice Puerto Rican lady. While dancing in the basic mode (hands together) I have no problem staying in step , while giving her more than basic turns I still keep up with her pretty good , the problem is that once I let go of her and start dancing free, I cannot pick up on her step what so ever.

    Can you give me any hints on how to stay in step with her?
    Thanks


    Dear Bit Above Average,
    Don't worry about her steps so much. Just slowly, when you're good and ready, get back into basic, for a couple measures, with a very serious, but caring face, look at her in the eyes, extend out your arms, SAY NOTHING, and she'll fall (more like melt) into place with you. If she doesn't STRAP YOUR BALLS BACK ON, BE A MAN AND GENTLY PLACE HER BODY IN YOUR STEP!

    If you do this in a gentle, but firm, loving, and commanding way (wow... now THAT is something you will just have to figure out), she will MELT back in your step / arms.
    Just watch.

    You being the Man God intended you to be FOR HER will bring the "Little Girl" out of her VERY EASILY.

    Just be STRONG. Be Strong FOR HER.


    Happy Dancing!

      "But I don't want to be a
      boring dancer to them..."

      - from a Budding Salsero
      By Edie, The Salsa FREAK

      Some men have a "list" of female dancers they only dream about asking "some day".

      Gentlemen, if you want to improve,
      you've got to swallow your pride,
      and just ask high-caliber females to dance once in a while.

      They won't bite you.
      To get better, on occasion, you've got to practice with some of the best...

      "Dear Edie, I have a situation. I had a dance recently with a woman and we were doing great on the dancefloor until she started "re-affirming" what I was doing, and asking if she did this right, did that right... it was like, "Was I supposed to turn there?.... Did I do too many turns? .... Am I supposed to go left, right... did I step back ok...???" OMG... BY THE END OF THE DANC...

    • High Heels are Killing Me
      by ediester



      Dear Edie I live in on the east coast and have followed your articles for years. You are a great inspiration to me. I have a nagging question and just know you are the one to ask. I am 41 years old and a pretty good dancer. I practice all the time. I STUDY dancing...videos, you tube, performances, classes, private lessons, etc. But you know what - my dancing SUCKS (well maybe doesn't suck, but is nowhere near as good) in HIGH heels. I have no fun. I can't spin as wel...

    • Addicted to a Salera's Smile
      by ediester
      "Dear Edie, I’m just writing to say hello. I will start by saying what I’m sure hundreds of others have already said: in your brilliant writing you make yourself so plainly understood and convey the complex and wonderful joy of the Salsa experience so clearly that it’s hard not to think of you as an old friend. :-) But I will add this. Although I am a man I am a feminist, and although I work with computers for a living I hate browsing the web. I know you have a strong ...

    • The Feminist Salsera
      by ediester

      "Dear Edie,
      I first would like to thank you for an incredible website. However, I have been frequently disappointed by your articles concerning feminism. I have always believed, and I think most feminists and dictionaries would agree with me that a feminist is a person who believes in equality between men and women. Male-bashing does not fit this description because feminism's goal is not to put down either sex. To me dancing is a great metaphor for feminism because in dancing both
